Alphacool Launch its New VPP Apex Pump with Support for SATA Power
Mike Sanders / 6 months ago
Alphacool has announced the launch of the VPP Apex pump! The new pump in the decent matte black design can definitely be called the legitimate successor of the previously so successful VPP755 V3. For this reason, it is logical that many technical innovations have been adopted from the predecessor model. The maximum head of 4.25 m and the flow rate of 340 L/h are clear arguments for using the pump in a performance-oriented water cooling system.
Alphacool VPP Apex Pump
Alphacool’s VPP Apex relies on a smooth-running ceramic shaft. In addition, the motor’s coils have been moved from the inside to the outside. These features successfully counteract the occurrence of vibrations, with the result that the pump operates stably as well as smoothly. A positive side effect is that power consumption is almost halved compared to similar pumps on the market.
A new feature is that the entire speed range is controlled and read out exclusively via the existing 4-pin fan connector. The manual RPM control on the bottom of the pump is therefore no longer necessary and is omitted. For the power supply, Alphacool has replaced the previously used 4-pin Molex connector and equips the VPP Apex pump with a SATA connector.
